Oh the joys of dental work

PR 16:31 Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life.

Well my grey hair is discreetly camouflaged and my heavenly crown is waiting on me but for now my new crown, on my tooth that is, is causing me some discomfort.

My dentist is wonderful and the most unpleasant part about the entire procedure was the squeamish feeling that pulsed through me every time I heard the shrill high pitched sound of the drill. The interesting sounds of the various apparatus employed to suck out the saliva and other debris, well lets just say there were sounds coming out of my mouth that were less than flattering and more characteristic of Saturday morning cartoons.

My tongue is thick, I sound like Mushmouth from Fat Albert, my lips are numb and tingling and I am drinking out of the side of my mouth and I am getting hungry and I know that it is too soon to try to eat anything.

whine, whine, whine........

So that is what these grey hairs are about huh? haha Sorry about your crown - or more so your puffy mouth! May the swelling go down quickly!

My least favorite part about the dentist is the bill. Why is it that, at 61, EVERYTHING costs $800 (or more)?

I lub the lispth!

ewww, so so sorry. I have dental phobia because I'm resistant to anesthesia of any kind. So you can imagine the "fun" of visiting for teeth work. I pray to be thick-tongued (after dental visits, that is). :)

Hoping and praying your pain and discomfort end quickly and that puuuurty smile is allowed to shine through and not be all lopsided for long :-)

I miss my dentist.

Which is something I never thought I'd say.

But he was so good about keeping pain to a minimum. And since my pain threshold is like .005, he had his work cut out for him.

I'm feeling I may need dental work and it scares me to have to go to someone who speaks another language and may not understand when I tell him/her how important it is to KEEP THE PAIN DOWN.

I ran across the gray hair verse just last week. I let my gray crown come out in all its glory about a year ago. I hope your new tooth crown is now feeling normal now.
